Latest Meat Shield comic done on Astropad

This is pretty neat, Rob Chambers who does the Meat Shield comic did today’s entirely on Astropad:

Here’s what he had to say

In other news, this is the first strip to be drawn, inked and colored 100% using an app called Astropad. A lot has been written about it, so I’ll be brief: it lets me use my iPad like a Cintiq, mirroring whatever is running on my laptop. This enables me to draw right on the screen instead of on a tablet that causes that whole hand-eye disconnect hurdle that I usually have to deal with. It’s only available for the iPad and the Mac, but the price is right compared to even a used Cintiq and the developers are super-nice and responsive to any problems. There’s a trial version available from their website and I heartily recommend it to anyone else who, like me, was pining for the chance to draw more naturally with their computers.

That’s all for now! See you next week!
